that this is matched by a historic effort that extends beyond our government, because america has no greater resource than the strength and the compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well, and i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fund-raising effort for relief. the clinton/bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar fund. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster, money that helped save lives, deliver aid and rebuild communities. and that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe -- destruction and suffering that defies comprehension, entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in th

of not helping, we bring you america's foremost televangelist. on his tv show, "the 700 club," which apparently still exists, pat robertson has topped blaming 9/11 on the aclu and blaming hurricane katrina on the gays and abortion. and blaming ariel sharon's stroke on something else. he's now today blamed haiti's earthquake on their slavery revolt in the 1700s. >> they got together and swore a pact to the devil. they said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the french. true story. and so the devil said, okay, it's a deal. and they kicked the french out, you know, the hatians revolted and got themselves free. but ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other, desperately poor. >> pat robertson, quoting the devil. saying that millions of haitian lives are in peril tonight because slaves in revolt 200 years ago were really just unfortunates making a deal with the devil. ladies and gentlemen, be hold pat robertson, the unintended consequence of your first amendment. haiti's ambassador to the united states, ambassador raymond joseph took extreme exception. here's his respo

the thousands of flights into america each day, domestic and international. there is of course no foolproof solution. as we develop new screening technologies and procedures, our adversaries will seek new ways to abate them. >> we will later in this news hour do a partial inventory of the republican response to mr. obama's remarks. but mr. obama anticipated them as well. with the right wing demanding what even president bush opposed that guantanamo prison remain open, demanding an end to things like due process and the presumption of innocence, the very bedrocks upon which america was founded, mr. obama pushed back firmly and declaratively refusing to let terrorists or those aiding their cause by stoking fear define the nation. >> here at home we will strengthen our defenses but we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values we cherish as americans. because great and proud nations don't hunker down and hide behind walls of suspicion and mistrust. that is exactly what our adversaries want and so long as i am president, we will never hand th

change america. you were in iowa with me all of the republicans that streamed through in early january 2008, they were so hopeful. they said this guy will be so different. he's not a crazy left winger, not a product of the '60s. that's why he won iowa. in fact, that's why he won in 2008. we saw with the stimulus bill, with cap and trade, health care reform, every step of the way, mika, he chose to take nancy pelosi's approach, and henry waxman's approach, and barney frank's approach instead of iowa's approach and this is where it landed him. >> tell us a little bit, given what joe was saying, we hear from the white house one thing, but i was reading tweets all night long. give us a sense of what you're hearing on the ground in terms of how people feel. not only in terms of the direction of the administration, but why they vote for scott brown. >> massachusetts, arguably the most democratic state in this country, don't want someone who is beholden to a party. and how you govern like that and pass legislation, i don't know, because as a party you have to come together on issues and make
's something i like to see and obviously a lot of my colleagues do, too. and i think a lot of middle america does as well. the whole issue of david plouffe coming aboard, washington and the media are fascinated by the cultive personality. and if president obama had already passed the health care reform and had an approval rating of 90% plouffe would still be brought in to help with the mid-term elections. axelrod is saying okay fly boy. time to come off the book tour and roll up your sleeves and get back into the trenches. he is a good hand but he isn't going to fundamentally change what is going on. he isn't giving different advice than david axelrod or robert gibbs. those guys come from the same place. it's interesting that this washington game, while it doesn't do anything different practically speaking inside the white house for the press and ultimately the public it resets the frame. in other words the press will writ something large into this motion that david plouffe has come into the mix and things are going to change because he is there. but that will actually help the obama adminis
to find out how america got rolled, began hearings this week. these four are not the victims of one of the greatest bank heists in history; they're the perpetrators, bankers so sleek and crafty, they got off with the loot in broad daylight, and then sweet-talked the government into taxing us to pay it back. watching that scene on the opening day of the hearings, it was hard enough to believe that almost a year has passed since barack obama raised his hand, too, taking the oath of office to become our 44th president. even harder to remember what america looked like before obama, because we've also been robbed of memory, assaulted by what the nobel laureate czeslaw milosz described as a "fantastic proliferation of mass media." we live in a time "characterized by a refusal to remember." inconvenient facts simply disappear down the memory hole, as in george orwell's novel, "1984." president obama's made plenty of mistakes during his first year, and we've critiqued them frequently here on the journal, but hardly anyone talks anymore about what happened in the years before obama. he inher

resistance to revealing to you, to myself, to anybody, to everybody in america, the e-mail traffic at aig? not just at the moment of the bailout, but over the past ten years? >> it's very clear that a lot has to do with the general secrecy of the fed. this is something that ron paul and other members of congress have complained about for years, that this entity can put trillions of dollars of american taxpayer money at risk, and they do so with a considerable amount of secrecy. in this case, they very definitely crossed the line by telling aig not to disclose -- aig being a less secretive, public company, and a company that you and i now own 100% of balls of the hundreds of billions of dollars we poured into it. >> what can viewers do, people who obviously don't serve in congress, don't have a cable show but have the same conversations you and i are having? and feel helpless. they obviously feel like the more they learn about it, the more frustrated they become. because they don't feel like they can do anything about it. what can folks help you to get more information? >> the most importa

bill: this is a fox news alert, we have new videotape coming into "america's newsroom" of a passenger jet that crashed early this morning, rescue crews, desperately trying to find any survivors after an ethiopian airlines plane caught fire and crash going the mediterranean sea, 90 people on board at that time good morning, everyone, i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer here in "america's newsroom". martha: i'm march contramaccallum, the crash on this -- the investigation on this crash is on this hour. no survivors have been found as of yet. gregg: the plane was headed to ethena's capitol and family awaits word on relatives and what caused that plane to crash. greg, are there any signs of survivors? >> >> reporter: nothing yet, gregg and martha, but you noted a frantic search for survivors, the fear is all on board that airplane died off the crash of beirut, near lebanon. i'm told the u.s.s. ramage, an american destroyer that happened to the in port in beirut is involved in the search, as well as a t-13 maritime search and rescue aircraft, also of american denomination.

that this is matched by an historic effort, but extends beyond our government because america has no greater resource than the strength and compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well. i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fundraising effort for relief. the clinton-bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar front. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster. the money that helped save lives, deliver aid, and rebuild communities. that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe. the destruction and suffering that defies comprehension. entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in the str

believe that barack obama was born in america? do you believe that the constitution can allow states to separate out from individual deals on the health care plan? they're all sort of hot-button issues designed to find tape that will allow democrats to identify and marginalize republicans as being part of some sort of fringe. >> yeah. i was just going to say, if that's their plan, i would hope the republicans would take that. those are easy questions to answer, i would think, unless you are an extremist. hey, let's go to another issue right now that has to help democrats out with independent voters, mike. i'm sure it is causing a firestorm on the left. there are a lot of conservatives that say it's not really that big of a deal. but it is with independents. barack obama's expected to propose a major spending freeze to rein in the deficit, freezing 19% of the budget to so-called -- ska with me here -- the domestic discretionary spending. talk about that plan and whether he's going to face a revolt from the left. >> well, he can hope so because you're right, the more flak he gets from

anything but to help protect america. >> by the way, this statement by brennaman is the very way this president leads. a number of times he has taken responsibility, said he is sorry, and moved on. and we've been often jarred by that. >> ironically, he will actually gain more political stature doing that, than by blaming george w. bush. it doesn't make a lot of sense, but at this point, when the white house blames george w. bush for anything, even if they have a good argument it makes them look small when they say, hey, the buck stops with me. doesn't it make the president seem more confident. it makes him seem like more of a leader. >> two quick things about that, joe. one a lot of people are sick about all of the references to the bush administration. it's over. it was a year ago. move on. that's in the rear view mirror. i was reminded about my conversation with a top-ranking national security official and it gets to the volume of threats. >> oh, yeah. >> i mean, just the sheer volume of threats that these people have to handle, administer and make decisions on each and every d
